How to make a natural expectorant?
- Sweet Pomegranate (1piece)
- Margarine (1 tablespoon)
Cut pomegranate in half (cut the pomegranate into two equal pieces), in an oven (microwave, stove top, oven), melt your margarine butter, then use a kitchen brush to apply the margarine butter evenly on both sides. However, if you don’t have access to an oven or simply don’t want to melt your margarine, use a butter knife, or possibly a bread knife to spread margarine butter evenly on both sides, flip the knife over and use the flat side to spread margarine butter.
Take out a frying pan, you can also use a heavy skillet and then heat or warm the pan over medium-high heat for a few minutes. After heating the pan, add the halves of a pomegranate to the pan and fry the peel side of the pomegranate, over medium high heat, fry until the pomegranate peels turn a dark black color (until they are dark black all over or until the pomegranate peel is burned).
Remove from pan, over a large bowl, separate the seeds from the white pith, use your fingers to scoop the seeds into the large bowl. With clean hands, get rid of the pith and burned peel, empty the seeds into a food processor or blender, blend the seeds quickly about 10 times until they are crushed and pulpy, we just want to juice the outer red part without grinding up the inner white seeds.
Pour the blended seeds into a wire mesh strainer over a bowl and squeeze the seeds until juice stops coming out. The inner white seeds will remain in the mesh bowl, and the pomegranate extract will be collected in the bowl. Pour the juice from the container into a glass bottle, close the bottle firmly and store for future use. (solution A)
If you don’t have a mesh strainer on hand, you can use two pieces of cheesecloth to strain the blended seeds. Lay two pieces of cheesecloth flat on a table, one on top of the other. Empty the contents of the blender into the center of the cheesecloth, then gather the corners of the cheesecloth together so that it makes a bag and use one hand to squeeze out the juice. Keep twisting and squeezing the bag over a bowl to get the rest of the juice out. Pour the juice from the bowl into a bottle, close the bottle tightly and store for future use. (solution A)
One pomegranate makes 70 to 125 ml (1/3 to 1/2 cup) of extract.
